The aroma of this beer is agreeably gentle and is carried by a discreet bitterness while the balance between the malt and hops relies on fruity accents and a lightly fresh aftertaste.

Pullo @ Saveur-Biere. Kaatuu tulppaaniin kullankeltaisena ja hieman sameana, muhkean (n. 3 sormen) vaahdon suojaamana. Tuoksussa on runsaasti mausteista belgihiivaisuutta ja happaman puoleista sitruunaisuutta, kevyemmin löytyy pureskeltavaa viljaisuutta sekä makeampaa hedelmäisyyttäkin. Maussa on napakka pippurisen ja yrttisen mausteinen hiivaisuus, jonka jälkeen löytyy makeampaa ja tummempaa hedelmäisyttä sekä raikkaampaa sitruksisuutta. Suutuntuma on hieman makea, mutta se kuivuu loppua kohden selvästi. Melko täyteläinen, kuohkea ja alkoholi lämmittää, kuten tyyliin kuuluu. Tyylinmukainen tripel, jota voisi vaikka oppikirjaesimerkkinä käyttää. Kaikki löytyy mitä tarvitseekin, mutta intensiivisyyttä olisin toivonut hieman lisää.

Typisch belgisches Tripel, was Farbe und leicht grasigen Geruch betrifft. Schaumkrone ist ziemlich schwach ausgebildet. Geschmacklich eher ein durchschnittliches Abtei-Tripel. Mittelschwer süß, wie auch der Körper.

bunget (783) - Ottawa, Ontario, CANADA - MAR 19, 2016
330ml bottle. Hazy yellow body, huge white head with good retention. Surprisingly fresh and floral aroma: grass, yeast, green grapes, camomile. Taste of yeast, sugar, herbs, peppercorn, leather. Very well done.

Helsdon (342) - Toronto, Ontario, CANADA - MAR 16, 2016
Pours a cloudy blonde with a big thick head, and lots of active carbonation. Nose of hay malts, sharp yeast and a little soap. Nice bready, yeasty malt taste overlaying a sweetness that offers a good balance. Not my favorite tripel but a decent one.

ardeo (108) - Flémalle, BELGIUM - MAR 16, 2016
Bottel 33. Bière orange à mousse peu persistante. Subtils arômes de houblon, fleurs, fruits jaunes. Bouche bien ronde : légèrement sucrée, miel, épices ... amertume finale sans excès. Triple bien équilibrée que je placerais dans la moyenne haute de mes favorites.

yourilevesque (1169) - Montréal, Quebec, CANADA - MAR 15, 2016
Une Tripel légère, savoureuse et sans prétention. Une mousse de moyenne à faible, ce qui est rare pour une belge. Nez très floral avec en prime quelques épices et une rondeur sucrée et levurée ’’à la Belge’’. Une cuillère de mie de fleurs blanches des prés. Forte gazéification en bouche qui m’encombre l’estomac. Le liquide est très rond sans être pour autant écoeurant. Encore quelques épices en passant mais ces dernière sont légères et s’agencent bien aux houblons européens qui apportent une fine pointe d’amertume en fin de bouche. Plaisante.

From the 330 ml bottle with an expiration date of 16-07-17. Serving at about 50 degrees. Gorgeous yellow pour with a light funnel of carbonation leading up to the softest, most delicate white head I have seen. 5 out of 5 for the look. Lovely aroma of apple, orange, lemon, Belgian candied sugar, toasted bread, Belgian yeast, and spiciness. 10 out of 10 for the aroma. Pleasant, medium body that is soft like a cushion. The taste brings out the same sweet and toasty malt character, orange and other fruit notes, and spices. No alcohol bite. Delightfully balanced. I cannot believe that I have not rated this one until now.
